What A Nice Weekend!


For the second weekend in a row, I actually DID something! I am on a roll...

On Friday night I had dinner with my cousin Mollie, who lives in Texas. She is in NYC doing an internship, and I threatened to tell our grandmother on her if she didn’t visit with me.

On Mama Bunny’s side, I am the oldest cousin, and Mollie is the youngest. I had not seen her since she was in elementary or middle school. She is now 22 years-old – which would make me, ahem, A LOT older (almost 20 years older!!!). We had a four-hour dinner, shared two bottles of wine, and had a lovely time. She is a delightful young woman – and it was really neat to sit down and catch-up with her.

On Saturday we celebrated my BFF’s birthday by going to his absolute favorite restaurant – Long John Silver’s. Yes people – Michael LOVES him some fried fish, hush puppies, and fried ‘skrimps’ from LJS. Since there are no locations in NYC anymore, we did our normal trek out to Hicksville, Long Island (yes, it’s REALLY called “Hicksville”). There is an IKEA there, as well as a mall.

While at the mall, I hit my favorite store, Steve & Barry’s:



And guess where I had “dessert”:


Yes, darling Dust Bunnies, “dessert” consisted of a Roast Beef sandwich and curly fries. And I couldn’t have cared less that I was totally screwing up my diet. It was DELISH!

I miss Arby's. Back in the day my order was two roast beef sandwiches, curly fries and a shake.

Good to see your personal side again...enjoying the simple pleasures in life. I have students dropping in this week, one of whom is a dark haired, dark eyed beauty who lives in your neck of the woods. Something about him has a relaxing effect on me and he's so easy to be around I just love him. Hope your young company was the same for you after all these years. The young keep us young, don't they?

Arby's is Da Bomb!!!! and I think a roast beef sandwich for dessert sounds totally reasonable...

how much fun, to spend a four hour dinner with YOU, the Best TRanny in the world!!! ahhhh, what I would give to be able to do that....

I loved Arby's when I was a kid- I would get their 'french dip' and loved it.

Glad to hear you are having fun times- sounds like a totally good time...

And really, sandwich and fries, perfect for dessert and way more nutritional than a sweeter option...

Between LJS and Arby's, you really hit all the hip and hapennin' spots, didn't you? Glad you enjoyed it.

Now whose Big Pimpin'?

Sounds like a fun weekend. And you have no idea how jealous I am, that you have Steve and Barry's. We don't even have H&M!

They just opened an Arby's close to our house so the hubby and I had lunch there on Saturday. Best roast beef sandwiches, curly fries and the horsey sauce can't be beat!

Renee said...

LOL skrimps! MMM Arby's. I want a roast beef sandwich right now.

I'm happy you had a nice visit with your cousin. :-)

I was looking to see if Dan commented on LJS as he loves it. I haven't had it in years. I haven't had Arby's in a long time, either. They closed the one that was relatively close to me. I need to find one as I've been craving a Jamoca shake.

Horsey sauce! Yum!

Your weekend sounds fun! We had different meals Saturday night and great company.
